Faramarz Aslani

 

Faramarz Aslani



Singer, Songwriter and Producer Faramarz Aslani is admittedly a rare phenomenon in the Iranian modern music. He writes his own lyrics & music, and he sings them accompanied by his stylish guitar playing.

He is a graduate of London University's College of Journalism and has written for several Persian and English publications, since his graduation in the early seventies.

Upon returning to his native country, he worked for one of two English dailies, "Tehran Journal" until he was spotted by the President of CBS, in Tehran.

His first album, "Occupation of The Heart", recorded for CBS in 1977, has remained on the best sellers chart since it's debut.

He also recorded a second album, "Hafez, a Memorandum", for the same company. In this album he wrote music on eight poems of Hafez, Iran's most famous poet and mystic.

After the 1979 revolution in Iran, he took his family back to England, where he worked both as a journalist and a musician. Faramarz has two daughters, Phaedra and Roxana, from his previous marriage. They are both successful artists, as well. Their latest album has been a hit in the United Kingdom.

His first tour of the United States began in 1992, when he opened at the Shrine Auditorium and was received by an eager and excited audience.

About his latest album he says: "these songs are the addition of all the sweet and bitter memories of my life."

"Days of Songs and Sorrow" is a magnificent album. The lyrics are deep and captivating yet simple to absorb. The vocals are warm and sincere. At times, the artist's guitar becomes an inseparable element of this intricate work of art. A fan wrote: "He sings with a passion that makes you fall in love and makes your heart ache!"

The songs are quite diverse, both in style and content. This is what makes Faramarz Aslani distinct.

THE MAN HAS STYLE....

Faramarz is currently busy working on his next two albums, an instrumental and a vocal, which he hopes to record in 2001.
